The new line is aiming for a Spring 2019 launch, and looks to improve upon the successes of the original Bones line:

• High Detail – Reaper Bones Black holds more detail and is equal to resin or metal
• Rigid Material – weapons and thin parts are much more rigid and hold their shape, but still flexible enough to withstand constant handling
• Improved Pigmentation – Reaper Bones Black models are tinted dark grey for ease of painting and viewing
• Reduced Seam and Shift Lines – produced with high-grade steel molds, Reaper Bones Black models are cleaner, crisper, and require less cleaning

Reaper's line of metal miniatures are already very low in price, with the Bones line coming in at about half the cost of the original metal figures. No official word has been released regarding pricing for Reaper Bones: Black figures, but there is a little more information about the line:

• Amazing sculpts – created by the best artists in the gaming industry
• Consumer-friendly pricing – Reaper Bones Black gives customers great value for their dollars
• Wide selection – Reaper Bones Black will continue to provide consumers a variety of options to suit all types of gaming.
• Painter Friendly – made for painters and gamers, by painters and gamers.
• Ready to Paint – just a quick rinse with soap and water and you're ready to paint
• Scaled to Fit – Reaper Bones Black models are the same size and scale as all Reaper miniatures and all modern gaming models
• Integral Bases – Reaper Bones Black models come with integral bases so they're ready to play with right out of the package
• Always in Stock – Reaper Bones Black models won't go out of stock and can always be reordered. You've got the demand. We've got the supply.

The original Bones miniatures were re-molds of existing Reaper miniatures, cast in a soft PVC material. The miniatures could be painted right out of the box, but had a little bit of a learning curve for miniature painters who had grown accustomed to painting traditional figures. It will be interesting to see how the new Bones: Black series of figures measure up!
